To avoid Wazer frustration when they don't see their 'poofed' mapped fixes showing up in the Application for weeks and keep opening more Update Requests for something that was already fixed in the editor.
'We' are not used to suffering for such an extended time without updated map tiles on the client!
Waze could really make it clearer if they just adjusted the wording of the Update Request solved emails. It's a couple minutes work for an Intern at Waze to update the damn email. But no...

It does make you wonder what they are working on at the moment, if they haven't the time to do this. It had better be good!

Then abandon the whole map editing game and exit gracefully.
The whole point of unreviewed edits is the immediacy of problem resolution- and I bought into that.
But right now, not one US edit since mid January have been visible to the users.
Your editor craps out, you keep (3 times) bullshitting about when updates will be published, and worse, you are emailing the users with "Poof! Problem solved!".
By comparison, every single one of my edits on Google Maps in that time have been reviewed, professional and courtous feedback given, and published on reference quality maps.

Disillusioned? I nearly fell of my unicorn !

Perfectly valid and correct edits from some local user are undone by a Google Reviewer to match the outdated aerials. I've got more examples around here too, and of course they all have to do with construction where roads have been added, removed, or moved.
Both systems have their problems, and there's no ideal solution.

gettingthere wrote:I agree with you that no solution is perfect. But there certainly has to be a better security model than how the Waze Map Editor security is being handled now. Do you think that a forum full of 'Unlock Requests' is better? How many edits have not occurred at all because the enthusiastic new community editor is blocked from making the map edit/improvement and they just give up?
